Rosedale Technical College’s 2nd Toys from Techs Toy Drive kicks off on Monday, November 20.  This year, toys collected will again benefit Beverly’s Birthdays, a Pittsburgh nonprofit organization that  provides birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in-need.  Beverly’s Birthdays believes in spreading birthday cheer 365 days a year and that every child, regardless of personal or financial circumstances, deserves a special birthday.

In March of 2011, Beverly’s Birthdays founder, Megs Yunn, met a young girl, Beverly, who shared with Ms. Megs that she had never had her own birthday party or even her own slice of birthday cake.  Inspired by Beverly’s story, Megs decided to start an organization that provides birthday celebrations for homeless children in the Pittsburgh Region.

Beverly’s Birthdays currently partners with agencies across the Pittsburgh region to ensure that no child is forgotten on his/her special day. Since their inception, Beverly’s Birthdays has helped over 20,000 children experience birthday cheer!

Last year, Rosedale Technical College collected over 700 toys for the organization and hopes to exceed that number this year.  In order to do that,
WE NEED YOUR HELP.

We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages newborn to teenager (0-21).

Toys can be dropped off inside the main office during regular business hours (Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Saturday (9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) or in the big blue donation bin, located outside the main office building (215 Beecham Drive, Suite 2, Pittsburgh, PA).  A school bus will be parked next to the donation bin to mark the drop off location.

Some suggested items that can be donated include:

  • Books (all ages)
  • Size 1 Diapers
  • Toddler/Baby toys
  • Board Games
  • Disney Princesses
  • Superheroes
  • Coloring Books (all ages)

  • Craft Kits
  • Axe Body Spray Kits
  • Makeup/Bath Kits
  • Make Believe Sets (doctor, chef, etc.)
  • Movie Theater Boxed Candy
